Great Thriller

I am not really qualified to give reviews on books. I, therefore, believe I can only tell you what I have experienced reading the book. I have really enjoyed the way you build your characters and I could easily relate to them. This said. as a fellow South African. I enjoyed the style in which your story was told. The setting in Bloemfontein. the streets and the characterization of the city were really excellent. The story read easy and remain intriguing throughout all the chapters. It was easy to follow even for a second language reader. Lots of research or knowledge were shown throughout the book and I really enjoyed it. On the language use, I really cannot give any comment. As a PTSD sufferer myself I could relate to certain aspect and within character, it worked. I was a bit disappointed in the fact that the character turned on and raped his wife but that was only my view. The only real South African mistake I could find was the vehicle choice of the military. The army never used Caspers it was a SAP operational vehicle, they used Buffels. I do however feel the book was well written with an excellent plot. I did enjoy the psychological twist in the story. I would love to see this book published and hope it will become a best seller in the future. Good Luck with the competition

Love your style

I am not really a romance person but I will endure. Your style captivate me and I love how you paint your characters in full colour I will say. Using POV of each character really allow the reader to meet them, understand them and even become them. Well done. I will read the rest of the book during the week and come back to give you more feedback.
